Everybody knows that cars are about horsepower and torque! But what does that even mean? What is Horsepower? What is Torque? We get into the nitty gritty of force- talkin’ ‘bout Torque and ft. lbs., and we build up to the triumphant power we measure with horses. It’s Horsepower! …did I need to say horsepower? We explore the relationship between horsepower and torque. You’ll find out what all those dyno numbers mean, and why diesel engines can make a bunch of torque, but not always as much horsepower as gas engines. It’s FORCE! It’s POWER! It’s HORSES! It’s SCIENCE GARAGE!

Bart teaches us how cars work buy blowing stuff up and cutting things in half. It’s a science show for the car lover who’s easily bored. Join Bart as he explains the science behind everything automotive. This is cars down to the atom. This is Science Garage.

    Simplest way I learned it as a 15 year old starting too work on cars, was torque gets you going, horsepower keeps you going.

    First of all, thats not a wrench, its rachet stopper.
    Secondly, WORK = FORCE * DISTANCE
    Not force/time 😂

    He got it wrong, horsepower is unit of power, which is how much work it produces in 1s, work is distance times force. Torque is length of level times force.
